Picture of Public and Private: Winston Churchill in Photographs

About the event

To coincide with the 50th anniversary of the death of Winston Churchill, this display gives a broad picture of Churchill’s many roles through works from the Photographs Collection. The steadfast wartime leader is shown in iconic portraits and morale-boosting ephemera, while press prints, tear sheets and snapshots show him as a correspondent, soldier, painter, writer, friend and family man.

Alongside studio portraits which became emblematic of Churchill’s bulldog-like persistence, the display features photographs of a Churchill as a young man and informal portraits at home with his family. An album of personal snapshots of Clementine and Winston Churchill’s voyage with Walter Guinness, 1st Baron Moyne in 1934, during Churchill’s ‘wilderness years’, will be displayed for the first time.
